Style ingredient: new ways to wear red

Gone are the days when a red clothing item was the stand-out piece of an outfit, paired with neutrals. Lately, whilst bright colours remain on trend, we have seen it being combined in new and modern ways. Here are a few new colour combinations to wear with red! All pictures and their sources can be found on my Pinterest account.

1. Red and pink (of course) This used to be sacrilegious but has now become a full-blown trend. Whether it's red on top or pink, any way to combine the two is on-trend and results in gorgeous, stand-out outfits like the ones above.
   2. Red and orange. Another warm colour that compliments red really well is orange. This subtle combination doesn't provide as much as a contrast as the pink&red trend, but still feels very modern.
3. Red with multiple other bright colours. Finally, if done right, red can be combined with multiple other stand-out colours to create a look that is both complimentary and contrasting.
